The woman at SMLL posts some awesome deals AND always manages to save an impressive amount at Publix (like getting $90 of stuff for ~$45). I wish she’d figure out how to do it at Whole Paycheck Foods!
I also learned about a FREE holiday music sampler iTunes download People Magazine through SMLL. Check out the deal on People’s website.
Speaking of coffee, I have a one-track mind today. The SP Cleanse is OVER!!! Mom and I celebrated with some midnight ab work (I know… we have never been normal).
I also had my second personal training session last night. I am still really loving it.
- 20 push-ups in a row, followed by 2 sets of 10 (boy-style = no knees)
- 65 sit-ups in 2 minutes
- 20 oblique-ups
- Lots of bicep curls, pull-downs, and triceps
Our last supper was a salad with Garlicky Grilled Eggplant (recipe at end). It didn’t get the gorgeous grill marks, but tasted great.
- Sweet potato
- Garlicky Grilled Eggplant
This morning I am supposed to begin adding foods back one at a time in order to identify any food allergies/sensitivities (I may have chosen two things to add…).
In my oats:
- McCann’s Irish Oatmeal
- Arrowhead 4-Grain + Flax
- 1/2 tsp Coconut butter
- 1/4 tsp Vanilla
- 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
I am aiming to add low or gluten-free carbs before going all out since that seems to be a common sensitivity.
Garlicky Grilled Eggplant
- 1 Eggplant
- 2 T EVOO
- 2 T Balsamic vinegar
- 2 Garlic cloves, minced
- S & P to taste
Cut eggplant into 1/4-1/2 inch thick slices.
In small bowl, whisk together EVOO, balsamic, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
Brush liberally onto eggplant. Place eggplant on grill (or grill pan) for 10-14 mins, flipping once halfway through.
Note: You will probably have some of the vinaigrette leftover – don’t toss it! It is good drizzled over the grilled eggplant and makes for a great salad dressing.
